The Del McCoury Band & Preservation Hall Jazz Band to Release Joint Album

The Del McCoury Band and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band will release their collaborative American Legacies project on April 12th via McCoury Music and Preservation Hall Recordings. American music fans will have an unprecedented opportunity to hear two masterful groups explore the common ground where bluegrass and jazz meet.

Inspired by the success of the Del McCoury’s participation on 2010’s PRESERVATION, a PHJB project made with multiple artists to benefit New Orleans’ unique Preservation Hall venue and its Music Outreach Program, the set offers a dozen songs filled with deep respect and joyful virtuosity.  

Complementing the release, the two groups have announced a joint tour that will feature them performing on their own and together in a groundbreaking concert experience.
